IRVINE, Calif. - West Coast Conference Player of the Month Marite Raygada won her ninth straight singles dual match, but the 64th-ranked University of San Diego women's tennis team could not make it three in row, falling 6-1 to 72nd-ranked UC Irvine Friday evening at the Anteater Tennis Center in Irvine, Calif.

The Toreros fall to a dual match mark of 10-9, while the `Eaters improve to 8-10 overall.

San Diego earned two match wins on the day, one each in doubles and singles.

In doubles, at Court #3, senior Justine Perl and sophomore Laura Claus got things started, powering past Brooke Bartlett and Hayley Young, 8-3. However, the Anteaters would bounce back, taking the next two matches at Court #2 and then #1, and consequently the initial advantage.

Moving in to singles action, San Diego would struggle to get their footing, falling in the first three matches in straight sets. Although the match had been decided by the time she had completed her match, Raygada was able to put a point on the board for the Toreros after shutting out her UCI counterpart Young in consecutive sets, 6-1, 6-3. The native of Lima, Peru is now 14-4 at the No. 6 position in 2010.

San Diego will look to rebound tomorrow when they face WCC foe, St. Mary's, at home at the USD West Tennis Courts. First serve is set for 12 p.m. PT.
